What if I Use Cognos, Microsoft, Oracle or Another BI Tool?
As other BI tool versions such as Oracle BI, Microsoft BI or IBM Cognos reach their end of life deadlines, the dates may change, but the story remains the same. You shouldn’t delay upgrading your BI environment, as you are simply putting your system at unnecessary risk. In most cases, as end of life approaches, support is often limited to, essentially, emergency help only. There are no bug fixes or new functionality developed for the platform, including possible issues with hardware.
